Crabtree & Evelyn began in 1972, and was inspired by the 17th century botanist John Evelyn and the English Crabapple tree that is known for its use in medicine and healing. These inspirations formed the foundation of the Crabtree & Evelyn philosophy of creating products that mixed the scientific method with natural ingredients to produce soaps and lotions for everyday use. Crabtree & Evelyn began as a small shop selling unique soaps from all over the globe, and has now become a strong retailer of bath products in over 65 countries. Since its introduction to the market, Crabtree & Evelyn now sells fragrances, bath gels, shower gels, soaps, home spa products, lotions, hand creams, and home fragrances.
